Rümmich, Hans (16th century)

Jump to: navigation, search

Hans Rümmich (Riemmich), one of the Anabaptists (see Philippites) who were arrested in Passau, Bavaria, on their flight from Moravia in 1533. At his cross-examination on 30 August he confessed that his home was two miles from Schwäbisch-Hall (in Marbach); that in Bruchsal 500 persons had assembled; that he had been baptized by Blasy (see Blasius Kuhn) in Austerlitz about eighteen months previously. He could not be persuaded to recant. His wife Judith confessed that she had been baptized at Heilbronn three years before by Wolf of Gritznis (Griesbach?), who was executed at Pretouw (Bretten) on the Rhine. She too remained steadfast.
